Amazing attorney
I was referred to Frank after needing to change my family court representation mid custody case because I was very displeased with my first attorney. He was simply amazing. Very knowledgable attorney who knows how to strategize extremely well. One thing that stood out the most to me was that he was always polite to the opposing attorney and my ex despite his attorney's very rude attitude in response. His assistant Kristin is a wonderful addition as well and the two complement each other in their thoughts and approaches extremely well. I was beyond grateful that he was willing to take on my difficult case when we were already knee deep into it and he managed to assist me in getting an outcome that was beneficial, something my previous attorney was not doing. I was called to a deposition by the opposing attorney and my previous attorney did not prepare me at all and I was terrified. Fortunately the initial date had to be postponed and I had hired Frank before the new date. He and Kristin both made sure I was beyond prepared for what to expect and exactly what to do and what not to do that I was no longer nervous when the day arrived. I would absolutely recommend him, and have done so numerous times since, to anyone who has been looking for a family court attorney.
